Two new support programmes for businesses in Devon

Two new business support programmes start this January from the team at Node, in Barnstaple. Fully funded by the European Regional Development Fund, each Programme is designed to help entrepreneurs at all stages of their enterprise journey overcome barriers to success with themes such as marketing, finance, online sales and accessing finance led by experts in the field.

Accelerator is a non-equity business acceleration programme aimed at entrepreneurs who have successfully traded for a few years, looking to take the next step.  In the three-years since the programme started, the 75-enterprises that have completed the programme have raised millions in investment and created opportunities for others while tackling a major challenge.  The 14-week intensive programme is delivered in 1-to-1 sessions as well as group workshops where attendees can meet and network with other likeminded growth-focussed entrepreneurs.

Startup Club first launched back in August 2017, since then, has helped dozens of aspiring entrepreneurs to find out the basics of business and explore their ideas through a series of informative and engaging workshops. Startup Club is the perfect choice if you are thinking about starting a business but not sure if entrepreneurship is for you or if you have just started a business and looking to grow your business. It’s also great if you feel you lack the knowledge of running a business or find the whole idea attractive but daunting.  The programme operates after hours over eight sessions.

Its a warm, light space in a delightful part of the village with plenty of space in the car parks and very easy to travel to."
